Inspired by Monet

Monet's Pond
Watercolor 11 X 15

If you are an artist, travel to France and go to Giverny to see Monet's Garden it seems like you are almost required to paint the pond and the famous bridge. It's such a complex scene that you can easily get caught up in the details. Photos seem to capture every one and it can be confusing. I tried to keep it simple and not too busy. I am pleased with my first attempt now that I am finished. I'm ready to try another one of a different view of the same pond.

  1. Jan your rendition of this is just beautiful.. yes simple and lovely. That was one of the things we learned at the workshop... edit out a lot of extra details, focus on the center of interest.
    Oh listen to me... trying to teach !!!
    BTW wrote you a an email and it came back.. I think I got it off this site... no matter,
